Saints Preseason News, 8/27/13: Jerry Jones Compares Tony Romo's Skills To Sean Payton's

New, comments

“Bill (Parcels) knows Tony well and he has always had a real appreciation for Romo’s approach and his intellect relative to play calling relative to seeing and understanding the game,” Jones said, via ESPNDallas.com. “He’s unique in that way. In a way, Tony has some of the kind of skills you might see in a Sean Payton.” We at Who Dat Nation can't wait to see if that statement is proven true on the field this year. In other news, so far the Saints have not revealed which players were released before the NFL's 75-player maximum deadline that just passed. I'm sure we'll know soon, so stay tuned.
